The trio of San, Emily and Jacob formed in 2013, but they have a long history together. Father and daughter San & Emily Slomovits have been playing music together since Emily was a young child. San, along with his brother Laz, as the duo Gemini, have been a highly popular folk act throughout Michigan and the United States since 1973, and Emily began joining them on stage when she was just eight years old.
Jacob Warren and Emily have known each other since kindergarten and have played music together in many settings throughout their school years. Emily, 23, is an accomplished violinist, having studied classical violin for more than a decade, and has also developed a lovely and unique singing style. She graduated in 2017 from Eastern Michigan University with a cum laude degree in German Language and Literature and a minor in Musical Theatre. Jacob, 22, is a talented and decorated young bassist, with an interest in a wide variety of genres. He is a 2017 graduate and Earl V. Moore Award in Music recipient from the University of Michigan with a summa cum laude degree in classical bass performance.
San, Emily and Jacob’s concerts feature a range of traditional and contemporary folk, jazz, classical music, Broadway show tunes, and more. Their beautifully blended harmony vocals and exciting instrumental work breathe new life into this wide variety of music, and audiences thrill to their warmth, humor and ease on stage. They released their first CD,“Innocent When You Dream” in 2013.
